Kumiko lives a shy and solitary life in a cramped Tokyo apartment shared only by her beloved pet rabbit Bunzo. Increasingly isolated, constantly browbeaten by her mother who complains that she isn't married yet, and stuck in a dead-end job with a demeaning boss, Kumiko devotes all her spare time to compulsive viewings of Joel and Ethan Coen's classic Fargo. It's not so much the film that fascinates her, more the suitcase of cash Steve Buscemi's hapless kidnapper buries beneath the snow in the titular city's outskirts. Rewinding and fast-forwarding her weathered VHS tape to the point of its destruction, Kumiko meticulously hand-sews a map that pinpoints where she believes the money remains buried, and commences a life-changing odyssey towards the wintry American Midwest to claim it.

He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of the wild fauna and flora, of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet's beauty. Sebastião Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by Wim Wenders, a photographer himself. Watch the trailer here

A powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, the classic testimony of that war from a woman's point of view. The story begins in the Edwardian spring of 1914, with Vera Brittain - a youthful feminist, free-minded and irrepressible ‐ determined to sit exams for Oxford, against her parents' wishes. She is encouraged and inspired by her brother and his friends, particularly the brilliant Roland Leighton, who shares her dream of being a writer. But her hopes for Oxford with Roland turn to dust as war is declared, and all the young men enlist; she herself gives up her dream of writing, and becomes a nurse. What follows is a story of heightened, urgent love between Vera and Roland - interrupted by the war, as Vera moves closer and closer to the front, eventually nursing German soldiers, who help her to recognise the futility of war. The film follows Vera's rites of passage through war, and through her wartime experiences, we understand how she went on to write one of the defining memoirs of her age, which gave voice to a lost generation.

The Hard Problem (Exempt)
National Theatre Live: Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play The Hard Problem, directed by Nicholas Hytner (Othello, Hamlet, One Man, Two Guvnors). Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brainscience institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.
